Gov't Mule are readying their new album Shout! for a September 24th release, and they've brought along quite a few friends. The Southern rockers laid down 11 new tracks for their first studio album in four years, and they also brought in the likes of My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Grace Potter, Dave Matthews, and Toots Hibbert of Toots and the Maytals for a special second disc featuring those artists' interpretations of the new Gov't Mule tracks. Gov't Mule still leads the way on disc two, but they let their friends take the vocal reigns for entirely different looks at their brand new jams.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
